    Some poor soul is going to get to come home and some family is about to find out what happened to their loved one.

    Yes, this is someone's loved one. I just hope this body is identified. So many aren't.

    May this person RIP and prayers for the friends and family.
    Thoughts and prayers for the people of Paris and all of France!

    This has got to be the worst day for anyone. I felt I was not equipped to cope when I heard my mom was passing, (Not enough notice when one passes suddenly). But, to be told you just lost a loved one is just too much.

    Prayers to the family.

    That would be wonderful, but Cherie would be skeleton remains after all these years.
    The way I take the news cast, the remains have to 'dry out' before autopsy.
    Makes me think that it is more of a body and clothes???
    My relative works in sherrif department but is closed mouth.
    DARN!

    Tell your relative to give you a hint... LOL

    I have no idea on earth why I dreamnt it was Cherie Mahan, maybe because she is from Butler County also... who knows.

    I haven't seen anything else on the news about the remains, I wish they would at least give us the sex or race of the person... or even if the remains were skeletal or decomposed, something....

    He has been identified as Thomas Zinza, 42, of Alaska. Apparently he has been missing since 2008.

    Here is his Charley Page (Posted in full so that it will still be available after it is removed from the site).

    Thomas Joel Zinza



    Top Left: Thomas, circa 2008;
    Top Center: Thomas, circa 2005/2006
    Top Right: Thomas, circa 2004
    Bottom Two from Left: Thomas in May 2003;
    Bottom Two from Right: Thomas, circa 1996

    Bar

    Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance

    Missing Since: February 16, 2008 from Emlenton, Pennsylvania
    Classification: Endangered Missing
    Date of Birth: February 5, 1966
    Age: 42 years old
    Height and Weight: 5'10, 200 pounds
    Distinguishing Characteristics: Caucasian male. Graying brown hair, hazel eyes. Thomas's nicknames are Tom, Tommy and Zinz. He wears wire-framed eyeglasses. He has previously fractured his right ankle. He has a tattoo of a small trout on his upper arm and gold crowns on his molars. Thomas has a receding hairline.
    Clothing/Jewelry Description: Unknown, but he usually wears wool clothing, hunting coats, expensive hunting boots or other shoes, flannel shirts and occasionally baseball caps. His preferred brands are Filson and Carhartt. He doesn't usually wear jewelry.
    Medical Conditions: Thomas suffers from paranoid schizophrenia. He requires medication which he wasn't taking at the time of his disappearance. In addition, he suffers from a herniated disc and chronic knee pain.


    Details of Disappearance

    Thomas flew out of Fairbanks, Alaska on an Alaskan Airlines plane on February 16, 2008. He landed in Cleveland, Ohio on February 17 and checked into a hotel near the airport. He rented a car, saying he would only have it for a couple of days. Sometime on February 17, his laptop computer and some of his writings were found along State Route 30 east of Wooster, Ohio. At 11:00 p.m. that day, he checked into the Emlenton Motor Inn in Emlenton, Pennsylvania. The next morning, the cleaning lady noticed the room had not been used. On February 27, Thomas's rental vehicle was discovered abandoned at the inn. Thomas was no longer a guest by this time; he had left on or before February 19, and his bed didn't appear to have been slept in. He has never been heard from again.

    Prior to his disappearance, Thomas was apparently having a mental health crisis. He told his father someone was trying to kill him and he was afraid for his life. When he spoke to his brother on February 14, he stated he wanted to leave Alaska as soon as possible and go see some Marines and his ex-wife. His brother asked him to get in touch with his mental health care providers, which Thomas promised to do. Thomas never spoke to his brothr again.

    Thomas was apparently en route to New England to visit family and friends. His family believes he was trying to sell some of his writings in Pennsylvania. He had purchased a plane ticket from Cleveland to Boston, Massachusetts, but he never made his flight. Both Alaska and Pennsylvania police are investigating Thomas'sdisappearance.

    Curiously, Thomas isn't the only missing person in his family; his brother James disappeared from Arizona in 1992. Both men's cases remain unsolved.

    Huh, that's odd about his brother being missing too. How awful for his family.
    Opinions expressed are strictly my own (who else would they belong to???)

    I turned in a possible match for Thomas' Brother James, who is missing from Arizona. I haven't heard anything back from the Mesa PD in over a year. Last time I heard they were waiting for the DNA comparison. I saved all the emails, I will look when I get to work tomorrow since that's where I sent them from.

    RIP Thomas
